As teased in recent Guardians of the Galaxy footage, Nebula, played by Karen Gillan, is set to do battle with Gamora, played by Zoe Saldana.

Gillan, who shaved her head for the role of Gamora, finally sees her red locks growing back as she tells MTV all about the fight.

Okay, so Nebula does not find herself funny. I find her hilarious. But she can't find herself hilarious, that's not scary.

Yeah, there's a big girlie fight sequence, but it's not that girlie. They made sure there weren't any nice pirouettes or anything like that.

It was the saddest thing in the world. They'd use a big industrial wind machine when filming [Zoe Saldana], but when it was on me, it was like, 'Turn the wind machine off,' and it was like beeeeup.

She's really experienced in the physical stuff, she was a ballerina. She's really amazing at all of that stuff. She barely required any rehearsal, she was like, 'I can do this.'

I required two months of rehearsals every day that I wasn't shooting, because I looked like spaghetti when I started.

This is the integral one for my character, because it's not just a physical battle. Their relationship goes very deep, and there's a huge history between them. So there's a lot more to it than just the physical.

"Guardians of the Galaxy" has an August 1, 2014 release in the U.S. starring Chris Pratt as Star-Lord, Zoe Saldana As Gamora, Dave Bautista as Drax, Bradley Cooper as Rocket Raccoon, Vin Disel as Groot, Lee Pace as Ronan, Karen Gillan as Nebula, Djimon Houndsou as Korath, Michael Rooker as Yondu, Benicio del Toro as The Collector, John C. Reilly as Rhomann Dey and Glenn Close as Nova Prime Rael.
